  • SPORTS MOMENT: 1995 Ohio State-Notre Dame game. Close Second: 2002 Ohio State-Michigan. In The Shoe for both!

    Played plenty of sports in High School, with very few truly great moments, unless getting into an all-out brawl with a private Catholic school during our soccer game counts.

If Cardale starts all season, he's the No. 2 overall QB prospect, at worst. Lock it up!

Have a happy and safe Independence Day! I am proud to be a citizen of the two greatest batons that the world has ever known - Red, White, and Blue and Scarlet and Gray!

Go Bucks and thank you to all how have, and continue to, sacrificed so much to secure and preserve this Union!

Andre Johnson's hanging on somewhere I believe. So are Vince Wilfork and Antrel Rolle. Don't forget Sean Taylor who would most likely still be in the League. That's a lot of Pro Bowls between those guys. They also had a lot of experience on that team. 2001 was better sure, but don't sell short the reason that the Bucks were such huge underdogs.

If you're not local, you don't hear him much, but it was a blast listening to him try and keep up with all the big time plays OSU was making on both sides of the ball in the B1G Champ Game.

That was '97 I believe. That '97 team was not deserving of the championship. As much as it pains to admit, UM was the best overall team that I saw play that year.

If it's anyone see my Keith Jackson comment.

However, as far as guys calling games now, I have to admit that I really, really like Nessler and Herbie together. Perhaps it's just because of NCAA Football for PS2, but I think they're pretty great. Tirico is also amazing at pretty much everything (he, Corso, and Herbie on Thursday nights is still my favorite team of broadcasters). Still, I guess I'd go with Herbie.

I don't know what anyone else thinks, but I was surprised how well McDonough, Spiels, and McShay worked out this season. I thought that they were pretty good together actually.

I agree 100%. Keith Jackson IS college football. One of my favorite memories is that any time there was a player he really, really liked, he'd just say, "And he's a good one." Perhaps my favorite Keith Jackson moment was when he called the '98 Rose Bowl. It sucked to see UM win it, but I loved that as Brian Griese won the game's MVP, he told Bob, "Don't worry. If you wanna cry, I'll help you stand."

IMO, the only thing that topped Herbie calling this year's CFP Championship was Keith calling the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. There is nothing better than hearing him call a Buckeye victory. Man, do I miss the guy!

Almost every championship team has THAT GAME that they probably shouldn't have won, but they pull it out anyway. That's why, as much as I despise them and their slithering, slimey worm of a coach, that '95 Nebraska team was so amazing.

Let's just all stay calm here...

Seriously, if they win every game on their way to back-to-back championships, they will have done something that no (major) program has ever done - 15-0, including 2 wins against top 4 teams to end the season. Last year, they were the first team to ever defeat 4 10-win teams, 3 consecutive Heisman Trophy finalists, shutout an opponent in a Big 6 Conference Championship game, and set a record for the largest margin of victory in a Conference Championship game. They did most of that damage with a 3rd string QB. If they ran off 15 straight this year, then it would easily be the greatest 2 year run (29-1 with 7 wins against 10 win teams, and 28 in a row overall) that any program has had since the 1940's. Keep one thing in mind - this is more than just winning back-to-back National Championships. This is seeking perfection on the way to doing something that only one program has done so far - win the College Football Playoff Championship.

The day that Hillard and Cornell committed was the day that my 14 month old was finally given a completely clean bill of health from a condition that was first noticed, and hospitalized her for a week when she was 6 weeks old. There are very few things in life that can overshadow a 5 star Wednesday, but that was one. I will always remember this date because of it. Hilliard and Cornell were just icing on the cake.

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Hmm, Bennett is a steal....

Allegedly the knock on him was his footwork/"base strength." I am still shocked that a guy with his talent and no character or injury issues dropped so far. He's my favorite Buckeye since Doss, so here's hoping that he's the next Warren Sapp (on the field).

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Admitting that one has a problem is not a sign of weakness, it is a badge of courage, and takes tremendous strength. Thoughts and prayers are with you as you end one chapter and start a new, brighter one. My grandfather was an alcoholic for decades and almost destroyed every relationship he had. I have been fortunate not to have been there, and look forward to hearing from you again regarding how long you've been sober.

but its battle flag, as you might have seen on the news recently, still flies at the behest of some state governments.

In the South's defense, the Union's flag still flies over all state capitols, and even at the White House!

In Ohio, we up the ante -

Comment 01 Jul 2015

1. Meyer - OSU head coach

2. Saban - Former OSU DB coach, assistant at Toledo, Kent State alumnus

3, Gary Patterson

4. Bob Stoops - Born in Ohio, played for his father at Youngstown Mooney

5. Dantonio - Former GA at OU and OSU, DC at OSU and Youngstown St., and head coach at Cincinnati

So, yeah, the state of Ohio OWNS college football.

I wonder if there is an opt-out clause? Let's just all hope that he stays healthy these next 5 years. Love and LeBron is enough to get to the East Finals every year.
